Can someone explain what is done to the patient in CAR T cell therapy?

How can I get my husband a doctor in Mayo in Phoenix AZ for his stomach problems? I’ve called and written messages but no answers. Please advise.

Thanks for the information.  I have a prescription drug plan and can only use Walgreen's.  I'm an exec member at Costco.  Will Costco review my drugs if I don't get my prescriptions there?  I'm very surprised and somewhat appalled that Mayo requires a copy of prescriptions at each visit and then doesn't review them.

Thanks.  I checked the Medicare site and don’t think they pay.   I’m surprised Mayo doesn’t check since I provide them with my medications printed each time I go there.  What do they charge for this service?  And why do they need the medications list at each visit if no one looks at it?JudyLong

How did you get this appointment?  I thought the purpose of reviewing my medications each time I go to Mayo was so that the pharmacist could coordinate them, but apparently that isn't the case.  Do you have to get a referral to the pharmacist or can you just make your own appointment?  Of course, I'm sure Mayo will bill for that.

Thanks,

Each time I go to an appointment at Mayo, I take a list of my medications and receive a list of medications that the Pharmacy has on file. I have to compare them to determine whether they are the same and if not, make the changes and give them to the doctor with whom I have an appointment. What happens to the list after that? Does a pharmacist go over the list? Does a pharmacist compare the meds to determine whether they are compatible? Does anyone know the answer to that question?

I think if they want us to review our medications each time we have an appointment at Mayo, then a pharmacist should be reviewing them for drug interactions or why bother to review them.   I wonder if anyone reviews them.
